28 May 2007

Many readers are familiar with the Afrint project and some of its publications, like The African Food Crisis: Lessons from the Asian Green Revolution edited by G. Djurfeldt, H. Holmén et al. (link). They will be interested to note that Afrint II is now launched. This is a follow-up of the study of agricultural development and food security in nine African countries with field data collected in 2002. We will now establish a panel and will be able to gauge current developments in more than 100 villages in these countries and to more precisely address its drivers.

Afrint II is financed by the Swedish Science Council and Sida, Sarec and the Natural Resources Division. It involves the following institutions:
